I Spy Your Eye Photography

Join artist Mary Church in this three-part class covering the key principles of photography.

The final element of this class will be a display of your images and discoveries that you made during your time there.

To participate in this class, you will need to have either a digital camera, an iPhone/ iPad, or Android/smart phones (all digital devices welcome). This class is suitable for ages 10 to 110.

Intro to Sewing: Messenger Bag

Learn how to sew a one-of-a-kind messenger bag on a sewing machine in this introduction to textiles with Carmen Gundelach.

This class is suitable for all age groups, but children aged 7-10 years must be accompanied by an adult.

This class is not suitable for children under 7 years of age.

Cost: $125.
